Alice was the first-born child of Weldon and Eloise Fogle. She was born on June 17, 1953, in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. Alice grew up on a farm with her family in Illinois until she was sixteen, when she moved to Denver, CO to live with her grandmother. At age eighteen Alice joined the US Army as a code cracker, a job where she was one of eight women in her field. Shortly after joining the Army she had two children.
Once discharged from the Army, single with two young children Alice moved to El Paso, Texas where she met the love of her life, partner and best friend Jerry Robinson. Alice and Jerry moved to La Jara, Colorado early in their marriage to work the family farm, “Robinson Hay Brokers.” After some time, they left the farm and moved to Denver, Colorado. They never liked living in the big city and so when Jerry got a job in Alamosa, Colorado, they were thrilled to come back to the Valley to make their home. Alice was always busy with children, some hers and many that were not hers, but she still took them under her wing. Throughout the years, Alice loved to read, do puzzles, crafts and ribbing the ones she loved the most. Alice was an outstanding member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Marine Corp League, Easter Star, and Red Hats Society. Alice loved to talk and would remind those around her to live one day at a time. Her stick with it and never give up attitude was paramount throughout her life.
